City Week Ahead – Geez, Who’s in charge of Council Agenda Management?

Posted February 24th, 2014 @ 8:38 AM by

8 meetings before 4:30 (32%), 16 before 5:30 (64%). So, someone thinks 32 – 64% of the meetings don’t need public input? Agree? Bonus this week, at least one of these meetings, the building will be locked if you get there late.
